Network Coding Meets Information-Centric Networking

Marie-Jose Montpetit, Cedric Westphal, Dirk Trossen

The focus of user behavior in the Internet has changed over the recent years towards being driven by exchanging and accessing information. Many advances in networking technologies have utilized this change by focusing on the content of an exchange rather than the endpoints exchanging the content. Network coding and information centric networking are two examples of these technology trends, each being developed largely independent so far. This paper brings these areas together in an evolutionary as well as explorative setting for a new internetworking architecture. We outline opportunities for applying network coding in a novel and performance-enhancing way that could eventually push forward the case for information centric network itself.
